  • Tuesday Olson knew her pregnancy was in trouble and tried to access hospital care as soon as possible. But there was a problem: she was in jail. This is her story.
  • It’s time to end the death penalty in Colorado. Family members who lost loved ones to murder speak out against an unjust and broken system.

  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

Voting is one of our most basic rights, but it’s meaningless if we don’t take the time to make our voices heard. 
Make some calls. Meet some new friends. Eat some pizza! Help us remind people in Lakewood to vote this November and let them know about the Vehicle Impound ballot initiative they’ll be voting on. This misguided initiative would require police officers to impound the vehicles of anyone driving without license or registration, even if the driver simply forgot those items at home. It would cost drivers $2700 to retrieve their cars from the city impound lots. The ACLU of Colorado is part of the Coloradans for Safe Communities coalition that opposes this initiative because it will encourage racial profiling, eliminate due process protections, and waste public resources. Last year Denver voters defeated an almost identical proposal, Initiative 300, which by nearly a 3-1 margin.
